Garage floor repair material?

MarkPBG
Since my house doesn't have a garage, but it does have a garage sized den with a big side door, I'm turning it into my motorcycle shop. I got cabinets, workbenches, air compressor, and even an automatic overhead fire suppression system.

When I was tearing out a poorly made closet, the floor got some big chips in it from where the footers where power-nailed in. Does anyone have any experience on what kind of filler to use to make the floor smooth again, that hopefully the epoxy garage floor sealer I bought will bond to just like the rest of the concrete?

Thanks for any tips.

Hydraulic cement. The stuff bonds so well that it's water tight. Hence the name. It's what you use to seal cracks in foundations/basement walls when you water have water leaks in them.

I think I'll try that hydraulic cement. Home Depot has a little bucket and I can also use it to seal up the settling crack that runs across the den floor. Bonus. :)
Thanks!
